    Worst in the East, maybe worse then Auburn even. I'm sure Mizzou will finally get a SEC win when they play each other.

    Looks like you are somewhat of an electronics technician! Pretty good too if you got your monitor working. I worked at a television repair place after I got out of the service. I had some electronics training in the Navy. Haven't done any of that for years and don't have any real diagnostic equipment. I have a Pioneer VSX-271X Multichannel Receiver that quit working some time after I had a power surge at my house (lightning). It worked for a while after that and just quit. It is about a $1200 unit new but I can't find anyone that works on stereo equipment. You want to take a crack at it in your spare time? :norton

    I would be happy to take a gander at it Tim, I will see if I can google up the schematic.

    edit- finding lots of VSX models, but not the 271, are you sure on the model number?

    I looked here:

    Oh, Sorry, I read it wrong it is a 27TX. I appreciate your offer to see if you can fix it. I will get it to you somehow. Let me know what would be the most convenient way for you. :norton

    I don't think so. Storms didn't hit till after he went missing. He wandered away once before, chasing free food from up the road. I reckon he'll show up sometime today. If not, oh well.

    I saw Travis today on his bike racing past during a hair scramble down by the spoke plant near Boston Church. #851. He did not see me but some people parked next to him said, "here he comes now". They were racing a 7 mile track for two hours! Damm, that must be brutal!

    Got my fat dawg back. The idjit was playing in the road 1/4 mile from the house. The lady who had him said he came close to getting hit a coupla time so she turned around and went back to check on him.
    She opened her car and the slut jumped right in. :lol3 She found my phone # on his collar and called me today. I drove over to her house and retrieved the mutt. :clap
    It was bad enough that he ran off, but going to get him interrupted my tearing down the XR to asses damage.:cry Pics to follow on that lil adventure.:puke1

    Ripped the top end off my '95 today. Found a hole burnt in the piston and some scoring on the rear cylinder wall. Sooooo...

    New top end. Wondering how big I can go without having to do major intake/exhaust work. I'm running stock carb and exhaust presently.

    Here's what I found.

    Scuffing/slight scoring on the cylinder wall.

    And so it'll sit till I get all my parts together. Lessee, tires on the wifes car or parts for the bike. Hmmmmmm

    dang Ojay,

    what the heck did he do to burn a hole in the piston?

    that bike looks identical to my sons xr250 sitting in here naked.

    IM glad you got the dog back, ive lost a few through the years, and not knowing always bothers me.


    BTW I think I might have seen scribe at a gas station in town this morning.

    on a black and grey cool aid maker.


    :D

    I'm not sure what the cause is Matt. I couldn't find any leaks around the intake tract. And I rode the bike just a few days before Wil did without any trouble. He just got the luck of being on it when it went sour. :deal

    The dog is very glad to be back home. :lol3
